Exclusive Addiction & Co-occurring PTSD Treatment for Veterans in San Rafael, CA

Members of the military demonstrate bravery and dedication on a daily basis, which can lead to a profound sense of pride and purpose. While being part of the armed forces is highly rewarding, it can also expose military personnel to higher levels of stress, as well as an increased likelihood of witnessing or directly experiencing trauma.

At Bayside Marin, we understand how the cumulative effects of trauma can lead to the onset of posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD), which can limit a service member’s or veteran’s ability to carry out their job responsibilities and live a healthy, productive life.

VA Mission Act

After the passage of the VA Mission Act of 2018, the Veterans Administration (VA) launched a program that gives veterans more treatment options. When the VA cannot provide the care a veteran needs, they can work with their healthcare provider to receive treatment within the VA’s Community Care Network (CCN).

Bayside Marin is proud to be part of the VA system as a contracted participating Community Care Network (CCN) provider.

Our Philosophy

At Bayside Marin, we understand that traumatic experiences can increase the risk of PTSD as well as drug or alcohol addiction.  As such, we have created individualized detox protocols, treatment regimens, and continuing care plans that are designed to address the unique needs of the veteran community.

Our experienced clinicians utilize a blend of evidence-based theories and holistic modalities to assist in defining each veteran’s recovery plan while striving to help reduce the stigma and shame associated with PTSD, addiction, and other mental health concerns.

Our Treatment Approach

During treatment, veterans will work with their therapist to develop a customized treatment plan, which includes both individual and group therapy.

We have purposely chosen holistic and movement therapy opportunities for veterans. This population can reap the benefits of healing and recovery through activities such as ecotherapy, mindfulness meditation, yoga, acupuncture, therapeutic massage, Pilates, and music/art therapies. Clients also have access to our private, fully equipped gym, steam room, sauna, and pool.

To teach effective coping skills and increase each person’s self-awareness, we utilize the Seeking Safety curriculum in our care for veterans. This approach helps clients who have PTSD form a stronger, more stable emotional foundation so that deeper concerns related to trauma can be addressed without overwhelming individuals during treatment.

Family Program

At Bayside Marin, we believe that recovery is a community effort. We offer bi-weekly, two-day intensive Family Program workshops, and throughout the course of treatment, we seek input from family, friends, significant others, colleagues, and employers when appropriate.

Continuing Care & Ongoing Support

Once a veteran’s treatment at Bayside Marin is nearing completion, our compassionate staff begins formulating their discharge plan. We strive to help veterans remain successful long after leaving our center. Our thorough aftercare plans connect those we treat with the resources and referrals they need to continue on the path of healing and recovery. 

Bayside offers weekly alumni meetings, as well as access to the Recovery Choice® Alumni Outreach Program to provide support, resources, and promote frequent connection during the first year of recovery.

Admissions Process

When contacting Bayside Marin to begin the admissions process, clients will speak with a clinically-trained staff member who will help them with the following:

  • Completing an initial phone assessment to preliminarily determine if our treatment can meet an individual’s needs.
  • Scheduling and completing a formal intake to help our staff understand the full scope of their concerns. The client can also consent to our staff speaking with their family or loved ones if it will be helpful to the recovery process.

From the first interaction with Bayside through the day treatment is completed, veterans will be in regular contact with a specially trained staff member who will help with any additional needs that may arise during the course of treatment.

Our multidisciplinary team includes clinical and medical professionals who have extensive experience in treating veterans, including:

  • Board-certified medical director
  • Board-certified psychiatrist
  • Nurse practitioners and physician assistants
  • 24/7 registered nurses (RNs) and licensed vocational nurses (LVNs)
